“Remember, there are no small parts, only small actors.” Constantin Stanislavsky

Where do you fit in to the scheme of things? I always tell my young performers that each of them is an important piece of the story we are trying to portray – without their participation, the story is incomplete, no matter how small the part may seem.

Each of us is part of something much bigger than we are. Consider how a business runs – or an orchestra  – or anything that involves multiple talents, you’ll see that each is involved in making an important contribution.

Some of us have great organizational skills while others are more inclined to handling  people management issues. Some folks have wonderful visual abilities and can create ideas just like that. Some are more capable with numbers or the mechanics of things.

What ever skill you have, don’t ever underestimate the importance of your part in the big picture. It’s up to you to discover where your talents lie and then  use them.

Do you know that God has a plan for each of us and He wants to partner with us to accomplish the work He has set before us?

We all have the same opportunities in life, whether we’re rich or poor. We can overcome adversity, disabilities, having dreams shattered. We can accomplish amazing things, but we can’t do it alone. As soon as we recognize that we are part of something other than ourselves, doors open – changes occur – relationships improve and all of this will draw us closer to the one who made it possible in the first place.

Walk with God and you’ll never walk alone.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    I don’t have your website address. I see your “Likes” from time to time, but that gives me your old page when I click on it. I can only find you by way of the reader!

      Yes, Mitch, I’ve been teaching young people the art of acting for over 35 years. I’m fortunate to teach at my church school right now. I’ll probably die doing it.
